Take It To The SCOTUS (backwards where we’ll be found) – (song)

So with the Supreme Court back in session for a new term and as we brace to possibly regress to a new American stone age “Oh, remember the good ol’ days when the lessers knew their place?” and as the Orange appeals to those he feels he has bought and paid for to give him an above the law “what documents of national security?” delay packed in boxes with old crumpled quarter pounder wrappers and used sharpies from photo-op autographs (4500 dollars each and you get a sticker) assist, who get SO very offended at accusations of being nothing more now than another partisan political tool, even taking to stages to cry their dismay but only ever speaking to the very choir of those they claim to resist, to defend their self perceived objectivity, the surest of signs that they know of what they do, I thought of this of mine from back in May.

A little ode to the new High Court.

To the Talking Heads version of “Take Me To The River”.

We don’t know why you livin’ like ya do

G O P can – help you un-blue

We stole two seats now to leave you bereft

Of any hope of what – fair was left

And we wanna know – and we’ll – tell you

Progress stops right here

 —

We’ll take it to the SCOTUS

A court beholden to us

We’ll take it all to SCOTUS

Partis’n arm we made thus

To lead it around

Backwards where we’ll be found

 —

The extremists are not on the left

That’s just cry rally we’ve always kept

No radical court – it’ s square to the right

They hem and haw but it’s in plain sight

Want you to know, can’t you – see how

We lead them by the haaaaand

 —

Take it to the SCOTUS

A court beholden to us

We’ll take it all to SCOTUS

Partis’n arm we made thus

To drag your rights down

Backwards where we’ll be ….

 — 

Crosshairs, dazed stares, we don’t care, what you want here

Till we can’t,

Till we can’t,

Hold our glee at

Our own court’s red de-crees now

 —

It’s a court beholden to us

We’ll take it all to SCOTUS

Partis’n arm we made thus

To lead it around

Backwards where we’ll be found

break

We don’t know why you’re stewing like ya do

Bout all the rights – next in the queue

To be struck down now  – with radical hand

Voting women equal they don’t stand a chance

 —

Want you to know now

That your rights now

Are up to Uuuuusssss

We’ll take it to the SCOTUS

A court beholden to us

We’ll take it all to SCOTUS

Partis’n arm we made thus

To lead it around

Backwards where we’ll be found

We’ll take it, we’ll take it, we’ll take it to the SCOTUS

They’re all ours now and we’re gonna have them show us

We’ll take it, we’ll take it, we’ll take it to the SCOTUS

You’re gonna regret that you didn’t vote for us

We’ll take it, we’ll take it, we’ll take it to the SCOTUS

We own them now and they’re gonna send us backwards fast

Yesterday Today Jan 6 (two songs)

So when I finally got home the other night and fed the girls and myself (different canned things, Fancy Feast them and Beefaroni me – I’m not all that crazy cat lady guy there just yet – though some of their stuff does smell quite enticing) and got myself sat down, I checked in in the Attic here only to find, whoaaaaa, a bunch of new views and this after two days of view bupkus replete with crickets.

Seems there was an out of the blue deep dive on some of my parody tunes, 22 of them with almost 100 “downloads” of whatever that means and a couple of views of a few old regular posts including one from 12 years ago of when Maria and Jagger and I added puppies to the already existing furry mix at the household then … Jackson & Brady (they’re still dogging by the way though I’m sure just a little bit slower these days – with ya there old friends – miss ya).

Now, mind you, I’m not complaining about any eye or ear balls, however random coming they may seem to be, and it was kind of cool to be reminded of this post, Spring Sprung Puppies, after so many years, a bit of a melancholy even set in at the reminder, but I noted that the top tune on the downloads list was something I had done not too long ago, right after that attempt to circumvent our election with a violent coup at the behest of a President and a bit down the list was another from around the same time that shared the same theme.

It’s that thing that’s been in the news lately by the way, that January 6th Commission and the public hearings you may have heard of or seen, all 20 million of you (just click away from Fox News for a sec) unless of course you’re Jim Jordan or any of the other Orange discipled sycophants who claim “Real America” doesn’t care, that they care more about the price of gas and that this all a partisan witch hunt.

You live in your world Gym and we’ll live in ours … the real one.

So a couple of tunes that were in the moment then and may still carry a point.

(to Fun Lovin’ Criminals “Scooby Snacks” from 1996 whose video sampled some quotes from Quentin Tarantino flicks)

Trumpy Snacks

“Everybody be cool, this is an insurrection!”

Don and lack facts set the track long ago   

His act election taint would be the big blow  

After mail in lies re-votes’ll be where the enemy goes

He exulted to podiums

Future fraud agendum

And the lies don’t matter much

He bought with no cost

Small minds all loudly and blindly so

Singin’

Donnie Donnie Donnie

(Is this some Fascist T-Love thing happening here people or what?)

When loss came the long game went into play

Cries rang out loud … that this was a no go

He couldn’t have lost … hell he even said so

Statistically not possible and numbers were his go go

Made up as they were he couldn’t have been wrong  

They thought singin’ all dumb dumb days long

So they listened to him being done so so wrong

Not to just to him but them that was a no no

“Look, I don’t know anything about any fucking election fraud
You can torture me all you want”


“Torture you, that’s good, that’s a good idea, I like that

Runnin’ around spoutin’ lies all whacked off on Trumpy snacks

We’ll take your commands

Rush the gates all whacked off on Trumpy Snacks

And Pence don’t give a fuck about a noose’s close call

If self respect was in height he’s only inches tall

He op-eds big lie, like he’s money

Though Trump had hoped his feet dangled funny

Ron Johnson chimes new times explanation

Antifa hell bent on insurrection

And try blame Pelosi for not calling in Nat guard

10,000 strong Trump numbers lie song

Revisionists don’t care much what they get wrong

Say it it enough and it’ll last days years long

But in the meantime you’re votes we leave charred

Suppression will and always be in their yard

Cause they can’t win without playing that card

Trumpy, we need you, are we fools?

Nah, you’re tools

Runnin’ around spoutin’ lies all whacked off on Trumpy snacks

We’ll take your commands

Rush the gates all whacked off on Trumpy Snacks

Muddy the waters make the rounds

All whacked off on Trumpy Snacks

Nothin’ to see pundits sound

All whacked off on Trumpy Snacks  

You got nothin’ on him

Nothin’

It was no big deal

(to Stevie Wonder’s “I Wish”)

Dark Days (they wish)

Looking back on lost years and an orange headed lyin’ boy

Whose one and only con-cern was power and just how earn from ploy

We watched and listened sadly, the starkness of the thing

That had support too many, discipled GOP

Truth went out the window, propaganda became the truth de jour

Echoed many sides now, podiums to pundits even went on tour

The press tried too late stem tide, point out all the lies

But they opened up that window, just tryin’ now save hides

They were dark days … you’d … think we’d want no more

Some truly sad … days … attack norms at the core 

But some still want … those … days to darken doors

Now hold seditious dreams, yeah, they hold a torch 

They hold a torch

The time came to be counted, a real count not a one that aimed at steal

Enough of us did stand up, a threat was posed and seen saw to be real 

But even then some hundred plus signed on to a deal 

To stand with former power mad with fraud as the new spiel

That led to insurrection, encouraged violence for a new rule

With help also from inside who even took some to tour of new school

Useful idiots follow dumb as useful tools

The Gaetz, Hawley’s, McCarthy’s fools who know the fools

They were dark days … you’d … think they’d want no more

Some truly sad … days … attack norms at the core 

But some still want … those … days to darken doors

Now hold seditions dreams, yeah they hold a torch 

They hold a torch

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doodah doo

Trump: “Statistically impossible to have lost the 2020 Election”

“Big protest in DC on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!”

Olivia Troye: “very concerned that there will be violence on January 6th because the president himself encourages it.”

Ted “Bad Beard Breath” Cruz: “We will not go quietly into the night. We will defend liberty. And we are going to win.”

Trump and Jr.: “fight like hell.”

Jr.: “We need to fight.”

Trump: “They’re not taking this White House. We’re going to fight like hell.”

“… and we fight, we fight like hell, and if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.”

Giuliani: “Let’s have trial by combat´

Mo “Box of Rocks” Brooks: “… Today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass.”

Trump: “American Patriots,”

“… We love you, you’re very special.” 

Trump: “These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever!
